Bunker Hill Community College: October 2010 report.

We very much enjoyed sharing our work with you during the NACCE Conference. Thank you for your interest and insightful questions.

We are getting ready for GEW, during which we will again be hosting the Young Entrepreneurs Alliance (YEA) students. This year, we are including students from Madison Park High School in Boston in addition to Assabet Valley High School and will be hosting a ‘speed networking’ type event where YEA and Bunker Hill students will be pitching their business ideas to each other as well as to business leaders connected with our Community Center for Entrepreneurship and with Young Entrepreneurs Alliance.

Here is a draft of our events. Please note that there are two events (highlighted in red) scheduled for high school/community college collaboration.

A Day-long Conference for Boston-Area High School students interested in starting their own businesses

The CCE’s next ‘big’ venture is that of establishing a student-run business on campus. With this in mind we are surveying not only our students, but also area high school students to establish their interest in such a venture. In order to encourage high school student participation we will be distributing CCE t-shirts. We will report on the results of this survey at the end of the month.

BHCC’s collaboration with NFTE went quiet for a while due to personnel changes at the organization. However, channels of communication have been opened with the Program Director at NFTE’s New England Office. She is interested in having BHCC host a NFTE selling event in conjunction with Chelsea High School.

So another busy month building pathways from high schools to community college.

We wish everyone a very successful and enjoyable GEW!
